That feeling when you read a good book and you want to suggest everyone read it.
How to read two books at once? I do it this way: I take one more serious and the other for dessert. And until I did not read at least twenty pages a day more serious book, I can’t touch dessert one.
But this time it happened that Elif Shafak’s “Black Milk”, dessert book, had been intact for a week, and I fell completely into the Buddha’s biography. Thanks to this book, I discovered Karen Armstrong, a former nun and zealous Catholic who graduated from Oxford in 2008. winning the $ 100,000 TED Prize and has written numerous books on religious studies. Judging by how objectively and not boringly she described the life of Buddha, I guess she could become one of my favorite authors.
I am not a very religious person although I consider myself a Christian. I always wondered why people believe in religious dogmas written thousands of years ago. Now, after reading about Buddas biography, I already searched for The Prophet Muhammad: A Biography on Amazon. May it will help me understand why people believe in different gods?
But it is not about religion, it is about books.
